Restore MKV Format Support
Removing MKV Format support has a negative impact on the workflow of people that work with broadcasting software like OBS. Restore MKV support. Having native support for MKVs, even if they don't edit well without generating proxies, saves me a ton of time that I'd otherwise have to spend remuxing/transcoding files.

Please bring back MKV support.

Please bring back MKV support. This is a container not a codec so no reason not to support it!

Premiere Pro 2020 really sucks ***.
Choppy playback + laggy menus on my beast of a custom rendering machine. Plus no mkv support?
Good thing I still have a backup of 2019. Thoroughly disappointed.

Why would you not? +1

+1 from me! bring back mkv support, please!
Earth Oliver commented
wow, can't believe support for .mkv was dropped. Once again, not understanding the market...
While OBS can record in several different formats, .MKV IS THE DEFAULT FORMAT FOR OBS
Michael Palmer commented
Just had a use case to use .mkv Please add support!
Nick Barber commented

"Lack of demand" used to be the excuse Adobe's spokespeople gave when explaining why the Matroska container wasn't supported.
When the supoort was - silently - added they received a lot pf praise - and presumably got more subscribers.
The people who made the decision clearly don't want to explain themselves. Most likely because they have a really bad case. There are reasons for this decision that they simply don't want to reveal.

My guess is the trend towards increased adoption of adobe premier in professional editing (movie production etc) means a tradeoff in decreased support for features which are geared more towards hobbyists.
I am a bit surprised since the market for small scale video creators is at least large enough to produce millions in revenue for Google..

Still waiting for MKV to be supported. It just doesn't make sense to remove support for it. Did they ever give us a reason WHY it was removed? OBS recommends that we record on mkv -_-
John Raines commented
A lot of tools create Matroska files. And it is a standard in many professional archives around the world. Those are good enough reasons to support the container format. Some flunky at Adobe didn't know these facts and thought, "Let's remove this weird boutique format." Wrong-o!

Have you tried avidemux?

Further to my comment below, and after a few weeks of working with remuxed mkv files.. you can remux in OBS and VLC, and i've tried both. The file will import into Premiere Pro, but it doesn't behave well. You can't scrub the timeline gracefully, and if you try to position other graphics on the screen in higher layers, as soon as you touch the x/y settings in the Effect Controls panel, the graphic instantly shoots off the screen and disappears. i now have to keep punching in values in the x/y fields to position my supers. :\
Not sure where critical mass is for Adobe to respond to a feature request, but looks like 372 votes ain't it.
